The tranny would jump out of gear. It was a problem with a certain Ford
automatic transmission of the period (either the C4 or the Cruise-o-matic,
I can't remember which, my Fords have a C6 automatic or a NP435 manual
tranny) Unless the tranny was firmly in park, it would slip out of gear
while the engine was running and take off. I imagine the typical problem
was wear in the linkage was making people think they had it in Park, but
the park pawl wasn't quite engaged.
